Folding iron gate
Such a nice thing, and a work of art really. This gate folds away to be less than 10 inches wide and yet folds out, oh so easily, to be 59 inches wide (5ft) and at 67 tall its a fair old size. Lots of...
Alas already sold, but well worth putting a pic up, for folk to see. I think they're off to an industrial themed night club in Edinburgh....
Despite its (treated) wormy central spar, this is still a good tough old trolley made by the one and only 'Slingsby'. It has M.O.W stamped on the sides which I assume is for the Ministry of work?...
Vintage metal cabinets
From a factory in Edinburgh, nice couple of old cabinets (30 inches wide by 18 deep and 6 feet tall ). One looks a little older than the other and has a nicer handle and more prominent butt hinges (th...
Ah, a sad tale. This is the old base of the mixing mechanism from the company that used to make all the shellac we use. The place has only been going for a hundred years or so, and now its to be demol...
Shoe rack bench things
No prizes for guessing we've recently stripped out a school. We have about 8 of these pine benches dating to about 1920-30 in the following lengths; 73 inches,89,90,91,93 and 128, all approx as some h...
large slab of mahogany
Very occasionally we do a job and come across a relic like this. Its a single plank of mahogany measuring 155 inches long (almost 15 feet) by 28 wide and a chunky 1.5 thick. We've been working clearin...
pitch pine pillasters/columns
5 lovely pitch pine columns dating back to about 1902, so not quite Victorian, and we might be able to get a 6th later. They are pretty tall at 126 inches and we have various spare bits to patch up wh...
We used to call these 'acid jars' as they were sometimes used to transport noxious chemicals about, often by bicycle!, hence the protective metal cage and the straw packing. But, they were also used f...
Should of had these up for halloween. Looking more frightening when dusty and decrepit than when new. Gas masks for babies, I think....
filing cabinet box things
Not our usual type of thing, but I rather liked them. We have about 30 of these left from an old government building and I reckon they must be a good 50 or 60 years old. most of them are 10.5 inches w...
We managed to save a couple of these from an old farm that was coming down recently. A great talking point and aesthetic thing to look at, ...
old mahogany planks/counters
These came from an old joiners shop outside Edinburgh recently which was a fun job to be on. The place had been going for over 100 years, in fact some of the old doors had graffiti dating to 1906, and...
Typical of me, by the time I've got round to putting these onto the website there are only a couple left, and one of those has a handle missing. Its only when we came across a batch of these that I re...
machine, bell tower?
Well, your guess is as good as mine. Chunky machine with what I can only guess is the remains of a mechanism for a clock or bell tower. It has a rather worn brass plaque with a company name, brass fou...
Large old clock face
Old cast iron clock faces (one now sold). The sort of thing that would have once graced a church. We got them, in a round about way from a pub in the east end where they had been on the wall for years...
We bought 2 or 3 of these treacly long ladders from an old factory a few weeks ago, beautifully made and between 128 and 184 inches long, which is huge....
Snow White & Hangers-on
Well who could resist? i was never really a fan of Snow white, and my opinion of her isn't helped by seeing that she appears here to have fairly lumpy skin and what I think the americans during the se...
Potential table base?
Nice chunky black painted timber trestle with lots of ceramic number badges on one side. We thought that this could be quite an interesting base maybe with some toughened glass on the top. It would or...
We used to hoard these as they are rare things to find and not really worth the money that they ought to be, but needs must and its time to pass some of them on. Often made from quite cheap wood, well...
old apple boxes
After years of hoarding the few of these that we come across, I've decided to sell some of our old crates, and here are a couple of them, more to follow. These things were made from cheap wood and alm...
Large Cast Ventilation Grille
One of 3 large cast iron grilles we got in recently. They were originally set into the ceiling of a school in Yorkshire. There is a slight bow in the casting which means that they wouldn't be so good ...
